'Take the lead' and let the Guide Dogs get on with the job.


Guide Dog Mobility

Once a Guide Dog has been trained and matched, it is time to start learning with their new partner. It is exciting, scary, emotional, tiring, daunting… did we mention exciting!

Orientation & Mobility

Orientation and Mobility is a program of assessment and instruction designed to enhance the safety, independence and confidence of people who are blind or vision impaired.

Life Skills

We provide assessment and training in daily living and leisure interests, with emphasis on maintaining or developing independence and safety within the home environment.

Guide Dog Puppy Training

It takes nearly two years to train a Guide Dog. Training starts soon after the pups are born and at 18 months, they commence up to six months of intensive training to learn all the skills it needs to become a Guide Dog.
